The Union County Arts Center, Inc. (dba Union County Performing Arts Center) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. The day-to-day operations of the organization are administered by a professional staff according to the policies and direction established by the Board of Trustees.
With four performance spaces (Mainstage, Hamilton Stage, The Fazioli Room, and The Loft), UCPAC is dedicated to making Rahway the choice for the performing arts - for education, inspiration, and entertainment.
UCPAC's Mainstage is the historic Rahway Theater. This historic landmark is the cornerstone of the Rahway Arts District. Union County Performing Arts Center has played a vital role in the revitalization and cultural renaissance of Rahway due to its steady involvement and deeper engagement with the local community.
In the Fall of 2012 UCPAC opened Hamilton Stage, a new venue for the performing arts, which launched its inaugural season on September 22, 2012. With its 199-seat proscenium theatre, and The Fazioli Room with 75 seats, Hamilton Stage is a significant expansion of the Union County Performing Arts Center. Its opening accelerates Rahway’s claim as one of the state’s most promising new creative places. When combined, UCPAC’s four theaters and concert spaces make the UCPAC campus one of the most versatile in the state.
UCPAC’s 2012-2013 season offered over 150 concert, comedy, theatre, dance, film, and family performances.
